Jenna Douros’ pyramid shred workout

As much as we appreciate the calorie burn native to hill sprints, they can get boring come the end of your training week. Change up your routine with this high-intensity blast courtesy of our beautiful cover model, Jenna Douros – if you’re game!

Regardless of your fitness level or exercise experience – whether you’re a bodybuilder, gymnast or a weekend warrior – you can implement pyramid techniques and principals into your workout routine to achieve amazing results.

One of the reasons I work pyramid sets into my own training and that of my clients, is because they’re so versatile – you can apply them to nearly any workout. Pyramids can be a great way to break through those barriers that have brought progress to a standstill. The abnormal rep range helps to shock your system, shift those stubborn plateaus and really wake those muscle fibres up to improve tone and shape.

My training style contains a lot of exercise variety and an abundance of challenges to keep my mind motivated and my results moving forward. I’m so excited to share this pyramid workout with you!

Warning: this workout is quick, innovative, fun and, best of all, makes you feel like a child again. However, don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s a training session you can cruise through. The following pyramid set is a high-intensity, full-body workout that will require everything you’ve got and nothing less.

JD’s Pyramid Workout 

10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 reps (and back up to 10 if you are game.)

The aim is to perform 10 reps of each exercise with little to no rest. Follow suit performing 9 reps of each exercise with little to no rest, then 8 reps, then 7 reps and so on, descending all the way down to 1 rep. If you are game, work your way back up the pyramid in the same fashion until you reach 10 reps again.

There is nothing like a bit of healthy competition to push you harder so you exert more energy and keep yourself accountable. I suggest recording your time for completing the entire workout, so you can try and beat it the next time. Your only competition is you!

Roll-ups (inverted burpee)

Begin in a standing position. Squat down, rolling on to your back while tucking your knees into your chest with your hands above your head. Rolling forward, throw your hands down towards your feet and kick both feet into the air and press into a hand stand. Lower both feet simultaneously to the ground.

Tip: If this is your first time, you may like to do this against a wall

TAG SOMEONE YOU WANT TO MOTIVATE!

It is my personal belief that any individual can become and accomplish anything if you truly believe in yourself, overcome your own fears, take a risk, and be extremely persistent until your goal/dream is meet. The reality is that most people that have a goal/dream lack some of the essential elements needing to succeed

(desire, faith, a plan, daily action, commitment, determination, learning from failure, persistence)

In my eyes, you do not need money to make money. Anyone who is completely committed to their goal will do whatever it takes to gain the necessary knowledge.

Lack of time your excuse?? Then you have the inability to prioritize and make time for your goals/dreams (You make time for whats important) These are all examples to show you that the only limitations in life are the ones we create, believe, and oppose upon ourselves. Don’t let the only thing stopping you from achieving your goals be you. Dream BIG, set goals and take action.
